The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) regulates its registrants in the interests of protecting the public, in accordance with the Psychotherapy Act, 2007.
To develop standards and procedures to regulate psychotherapists in the public interest, striving to ensure competent and ethical practice within a professional accountability framework.
Leadership in professional self-regulation, dedicated to the principles of excellence, fairness, openness, responsiveness, and respect for diversity.
As I consider the events of 2021, I am conscious of the professionalism and commitment demonstrated by Registered Psychotherapists (RPs) across the province. While our system battled with a shortage of health care workers and hospital resources, Ontarians faced the physical, economical, and emotional toll of the pandemic. Throughout this, RPs worked to provide safe, effective mental health care.
